    5 star review  Tim kept me abreast of the scheduled appointment for the rodding of my sewer line for possible tree roots. Reasonable price that was based on the original description of the size (distance) and severity (roots) of the problem. I would call him again based on his fair price (mid-point), good interpersonal skills, and prompt reply and service.

    5 star review  Tim was great! Cleaned out my drains. I was about to spend $5000 to have one of the bigger guys dig up my yard for the second time this year! He is great I would highly recommend calling him for his opinion before hiring anyone else!

    5 star review  We couldn’t be happier with Tim and his services! Highly effective, trustworthy, honest and fairly priced. Plus he actually takes pride in his work, which is almost non existent nowadays. Anyone looking for an outstanding company in the drainage/plumbing field, should look no further than Drains Inc. Thanks again Tim!

    5 star review  Good plumbers are hard to find, Tim was recommended another plumber who was out of town. Tim gave us an estimate over the phone, every thing was done right the first time. They arrived on time, rodded the mainline to the street, cleared out all the roots, returned a full flow, cleaned up, gave us a 6 month guarantee and didn't charge us a penny more than the quoted price. Almost all of the plumbers we get try to get us to replace our pipe for thousands of dollars claiming its broken, good plumbers just do their job without any hassles.

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Flood control systems

Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Backwater valves

prevent sewer backflow

If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.

Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
